Experience - The Area...
With far reaching views over St Ives Bay and just two miles from the beach at Gwithian. Cowslip, Skylark and Meadowside are three thoughtfully renovated, attractive and comfortable properties on a 100-acre working farm once part of the Basset family estate. Set at the end of a long farm drive and within easy reach of all the golden sands and surfing beaches in the vicinity, this is a very convenient base from which to explore mid and west Cornwall, well placed for family holidays. The area abounds with footpaths and bridleways through woodland, nature reserves, open countryside and Tehidy Country Park, and both golf, riding and a surf school are available locally.
The South West Coastal Path offers glorious scenery, in particular the dramatic viewpoint at Hells Mouth half a mile away and Godrevy Point, 2 miles, overlooking the lighthouse on Godrevy Island. There are pubs offering food in the villages of Gwithian and Portreath, 2 miles respectively, and a good selection of shops and a supermarket in the town of Hayle about 3 miles away. St Ives is about a 20 minute drive with its picturesque harbour, narrow cobbled streets and home to the Tate Gallery. The old farmyard offers ample car parking, there is undercover storage for bicycles and beachgear, and both stabling and grazing for horses are available.
